@Ap2010:  It really depends, I’ve seen my best friend who lives in Georgia (where I am from) only once this year, and she says she is planning a trip out here but I have lived in Texas for 3 1/2 years and she hasn’t been out here yet. Last year I saw her a few times that I had extra time and money to make the drive out there.

 

I have another friend that now lives in Georgia because that’s where her husband is now stationed and they have been there for almost a year and I have visited them once this year.

 

But almost always if I want/need a visit I have to go for some reason friends and even family don’t come to visit me.

I have a couple of friends who I pretty much just see once per year.  I have a former roomie who I haven’t seen in two years, but that I will definitely invite to the wedding.  I won’t be upset if she can’t make it, but it might be the excuse we need to get together 🙂

Two or three times a year.  ):  I wish we saw each other more often, but since we all graduated from college less than two years ago funds aren’t plentiful enough to see each other more frequently.

Probably 2-4 times a year, depending on where they live.

SO and I try to make it down to DC (where we went to college and a lot of our friends still live) at least 2x a year, and my best friend usually comes to visit us 1-2x a year.

We have another couple of friends who live in NYC, and we probably see them 3-4 times a year.

Our remaining long distance friends live in Cali – this year we’ve seen both of them 2x, but last year we didn’t see them at all. We’re already planning to go out there in March, so it really just depends on finances and timing.

@Ap2010:  One of my friends just moved to the States…this literally happened a few days ago. I guess time will tell! I don’t anticipate I will see her very often. Whenever she comes back to visit her family I suppose.

Usually whenever we go back to visit, so 1-2 times per year.

I see my high school friends and 1-3 times a year, depending how often I get back to my home state and depending how much time family stuff takes up and how well our schedules match.

I see another home state friend about 4-5 times a year because she likes to travel and will frequently visit where I am. She’s also the only friend I saw for the two and a half years when I was abroad because she visited me or we met up in third countries.

College friends and adult friends who are scattered around the country I only see every year or every few years, depending on where they live. I saw one friend twice in about a four month period of time recently so that was really nice!

We also don’t do a lot of calling/texting/emailing. When we do see each other, the long waits make it sooooo much sweeter!

My bestfriend currently lives in Switzerland and I talk to him via skype every other week for a couple of hours. I may not see him in person again until he comes back to the states for my wedding.

I’m now about 10 hours away from most of my long time friends.  We only get to see each other about a cuple times a year right now, but it depends on what is going on and our schedules.  I talk on the phone with them a lot more than that though!  My college friends are getting together this weekend, I wanted to lfy in but it was way too expensive, so I think I’m going to be joining them via skype for a bit.

I’m Armed Forces are as most of my really close girl friends so we tend to be all over the world at any given time but we make the effort to see each other at least twice a year for the Xmas and Summer Ball season.  That might mean we all get together at someone’s Xmas Ball in one country and then we all get together again in the Summer at someone elses Summer Ball.

It’s not easy but so worth the effort to catch up and betewen visits we Skype, text, e-mail etc.

One of my good friends for high schools lives a good 12 hour drive away. I’ve seen her like, once every year or so, sometimes every two years. Most recently, I was driving in her neck of the woods for work and dropped in. 

She and I get right back where we started no matter how long it’s been! Some people are meant to be friends!

My farthest friend is about 6 hours away and i see her at least once every 6 months. Texting and phone calls keep me close with all my friends since very few live close.

Less than once a year. I haven’t seen several of my long distance friends in over 3 years.
